SHOULD BE CLOSED DOWN! Worst hotel we have ever stayed in. On top floor no lift. Stair case narrow and awkward. Room full of mould causing breathing problems. En suite disgusting DIY patch up job. Bracket for shower busted. Toilet did not work, Had to pay extra £2 for a hand towel (not bath towel). No glasses for drink. No...

Even though very cheap I cannot recommend anyone to stay here. The hotel is dirty, it smells, There was fungus on the walls in both the room and the bathroom. Two in our party got ill due to the same. We stayed in separate rooms and both rooms had the same problem.

I required a cheap, central hotel for 1 night before a meeting in Canary Wharf. I booked this hotel (even though I'd read the previous reviews) based on location and price. It was £8 (inc tip) by taxi from Euston Station and 5 minutes walk from Baker Street Tube Station (direct line to Canary Wharf) The room was small, for...

I booked this the night before our visit, myself, my husband and our 2 children. It's very basic, more of a B&B. The ensuite was badly laid out and meant you had to sit on the toilet sideways to avoid hitting your knees on the shower! However relatively clean. The fridge wasn't plugged in and to do so would mean...

We booked a double room here. It was tiny, extremely hot and the window faced the window of what appeared to be the living room of a house opposite about ten feet away, so very little privacy whenever the window was open. The room could really have done with something more than a grimy desk fan to cool it down...

We spent two nights in this tiny bedroom where you couldn't barely walk around the bed, the room was hot, with a tiny desk fan. The bed was hard not to mention sounding like it was going to break. The curtains were not fixed properly so the residents from the building next door could see in. For a B&B we...

This place really took the prize for the worst hotel in London. Rated 4 star but the rooms are in filthy condition. The management and hotel reception are ignorant and are only interested in your money. There were incidents where hotel staff are untruthful, appalling and unprofessional. I do no recommend this hotel not even for an overnight stay.

How on earth this dingy guest house can have a 4 star rating in the city of London is beyond belief. 26 degrees with a fan in the basement! Curtains fixed both ends so you could not pull them back (not surprising with the when you see the view when you actually lift the bottom up)

Staying in Marylebone

Neighbourhood Profile
Marylebone
Marylebone offers what so many London neighbourhoods cannot: a village feel coupled with urban convenience. Much of its success rests in its location. Wedged between the northeastern corner of Hyde Park and the southern end of Regent's Park and with a number of Tube stations within easy reach, Marylebone is as pedestrian friendly as Central London gets. The bustling shopping mecca of Oxford Street separates it from Soho and Mayfair, exclusive Regent Street marks its border with Fitzrovia, and cosmopolitan Edgware Road serves as its western edge. Within this enviably situated quarter are an array of outstanding restaurants (from Michelin darlings to down and dirty cheeseburgers), an impressive assortment of independently owned shops, and some of the city's quietest and most pleasant nooks, crannies and cobbled lanes.
